Hey Peter, Awesome performance by you and the other kids at The Basement last night. Very inspirational. I know how much effort goes into being able to play and perform like that. Much appreciated. Just loved observing your passion and enjoyment. Grant "The best guitar player you have never seen"

Peter, a long time ago at a place called Rock Music at Bankstown you gave me some guitar lessons... I have only ever done bits with my music, but you have inspired a love for music and writing to this day! I find myself teaching friends and still go back to those lessons and notes I treasure!

G'day Pete, Robbo here.( relax) Just quickly; My mate Johnny Holt (Holty) from Cronulla turned 60 this year (11October); His eldest son Dane bought family tickets to your Basement show for your 51st birthday.( me excluded) Now heres the pitch; ( be patient mate - I know it soundin' a bit suss!!) I play guitar - see here at soundcloud with Holty and me; http://soundcloud.com/search?q%5Bfulltext%5D=Shark+Taco+in+Prague 'Unchain My Art" - is me and John (Holty) - Me guitars and John on organ, bass and drum machine.. the other two 'Shark Taco in Prague' tracks - is just me pretending to be musical with Garageband.....I love it. I sing. ( apparently) Would you consider a 6.5minute jam with me (unannounced prior) at your 51st basement gig, just to surprise Holty with not only you and me playing for 6.5 mins, but for you as well. ( Why,,,, is a good question.)(( Not sure as to why?)) I'm goin to your gig regardless - but Holty does not know that. Maybe a jam with something like - 'Further on up the road' - similar to Joe Bonnamassa's versions??( Clapton can f--k off) see here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEEfDdJyxPY Happy 51st Peter. May Poindexter be your soul mate. ( and that funky jap chick nibble your ear always) I l like many, love your playing Peter and the Poindexter Jap chick thingy........ CD.( Not sure about the sexuality thing but hey!!) Cheers Robbo. Holty & I attended the Brass Monkey nights.( Maybe a slight chance you remember) No pressure. I actually still use the free/giveaway poindexter guitarpick from that night. (to scratch with) Regardless - have a great gig Pete. Will toss you a slice of pizza. R o b b o M: 0412 621 079

Hi.You're an inspiration for me. I'm hoping to play one of your songs as a HSC piece next year.i was wondering if maybe you could mentor me or something via the email above, if that's okay? Also, is Poindexter available on iTunes? I know most palces don't have it. Any tips would be helpful. Thanks.

Hey, I saw you supporting Satriani at the Enmore on the 14th. You signed my guitar :). Your set was awesome. You are an incredible guitarist. I tried listening on Myspace before the show but your music on Myspace never seems to want to work with my computer. I was blown away at the show. Will be buying the albums when I start work again. Here's to one day thinking YOUR supporting act has an awesome guitarist for me to gawk at. Cheers, Pej.

Saw you at the Jazz & Blues Festival at Darling Harbour yesterday with Jim Kelly in the La La Land Project. Well, that certainly was a revelation! You are an awesome talent - up there with the best. I'd like to see you try understated as well as flashy - you don't have to prove a thing.

I'll never forget a night out at the Croatian Club at Punchbowl around 10 years ago when a Croatian singer by the name of Bebek was performing. That's where I discovered Peter Northcote for the first time. You simply stole the show. Your a legend.

Played your CD heaps; To death actually: Almost sick of it - which means I've just about mentally transcribed every note - If only I knew how. It's a choice effort Peter. An excellent fabric of songs & styles; I hear many influences in your playing - You're a great player.

Just wanted to let you know that there seems to be a problem with the Photo Gallery. There are several photos where you don't come across as gay enough. Certainly gay, but nowhere NEAR enough. I think it may simply be a lighting issue but i assumed you want to know. Thank you for your time

Thanks Lib. Youre doing a great job! Now about those 40 basses you should get. You know you want them! Ahh but then you wouldn't stop at just 40.....then you'd want 40 amps, and 40 gigs and 40 songs each gig, and it would just rain for 40 days and nights and then you'd turn 40 and...and....

Hi there Pete, you rock god! Just making an inaugaural entry & checking things work.

By the way, my advice to you as an up and coming young player is simply to practice and perserve - one day you might be able to manage a song or 2 on your forty odd guitars. Hmm, I only need 3 basses.
